The MA (Missional Leadership) is a 48 credit research degree in Practical Theology designed to equip the student with both a theological and practical framework for understanding leadership and ministry in a complex cultural context. Developing an understanding of leadership, organizational development and strategic planning form the initial foundation of the curriculum. A critical evaluation of ethical issues in contemporary society along with matters related to spirituality, community and contemporary shifts in leadership models round out a program that equips the student to navigate the demands of a globalized world and the relevant demonstration of the mission of Christ.
The theological emphasis of this program is intended to prepare leaders to live out the relevance of the Christian faith as experienced in a committed faith community. A ministry-specific research track enables the students to investigate their ministry context critically and propose future options for it.
Upon completing the MA (ML), the student should be able to:
- — Apply Biblical principles of leadership to contemporary ministry contexts.
- — Evaluate and respond to cultural phenomena in light of Scriptural values.

Last year at about this time, Carol and I catered a President’s Christmas Tea. All faculty and staff joined us in The Commons for an afternoon together sharing delectable delights, gifts, and of course, good tea!
A New Tradition Continues
This year that tradition continued. Carol baked for days, and The Commons was beautifully decorated for one of the great social events of the year. But Christmas teas are much more than great food and gifts. These are the obvious outward symbols of the sense of team that we share at Trinity Bible College. Being committed to training men and women for ministry, mission and the workplace requires that those that serve the institution are more than academic professionals. We need to be a committed community of like-minded people. That is really what the President’s tea is all about. At TBC we are deeply committed to living our faith not just teaching it.
The Board of Trustees have been kind and generous again this year enabling us to share an wonderful event. Gifts were distributed and a great time shared by all. Thank you!
At this special time of the year I send you our greetings and wish you a blessed and Happy Christmas from us all at TBC.
For His Kingdom's sake,
Dr Paul R Alexander
